Turkish Riviera will soon welcome Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas. Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas currently operates 11 resorts and 29 spas in 20 countries under the brand names Six Senses, Evason and Six Senses Spas.
Canyon Ranch Wellness Resort at Kaplankaya, which opened its doors beginning of summer 2016, will be taken over by Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas on May 1, 2017. “Over the next year, the design, environmental and wellness operations will be enhanced to bring the blessings of Six Senses to the beaches of Kaplankaya,” said Bernhard Bohnenberger, president of Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas.
Located near famed Aegean archaeological sites, the resort, which is owned by Capital Partners of Turkey, has a total of 141 guestrooms and suites in the main complex, plus 154 private residences located adjacent to the resort. Each well-appointed guest room has been designed to complement the landscape using natural and responsibly-sourced materials. Six Senses Kaplankaya’s world-class contemporary design will support a guest experience of serenity and well-being.
“We welcome Six Senses to the Aegean Coast and look forward to their contribution towards the grand vision of Kaplankaya, as the world’s premier coastal living community,” said Capital Partners’ Chief Executive Officer Erkan Erkek.
The resort reflects the broader development at Kaplankaya, which will include residential villas, resort accommodation, a 250-berth marina and yacht club, a retail precinct plus additional dining, sport and leisure facilities. The vision is to create a high-end, environmentally-sensitive destination that will create a positive economic and social impact while also preserving the natural surroundings and wealth of history in the local area.
History lovers will be well rewarded in their explorations, especially around the cities of Didim and Bodrum. Indeed, the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus and the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus are both among the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
Milas-Bodrum International Airport (BJV) is just 10 minutes by helicopter, 30 minutes by boat and 50 minutes by car from the resort. The airport has scheduled services from Istanbul and other Turkey cities, plus seasonal services from many European cities such as Amsterdam, Baku, Brussels, Frankfurt, London, Munich, Paris and St. Petersburg.
